This painting, inspired by a John Snell photograph, was featured at Hotel Tango on Virginia Ave., near Fountain Square in Indianapolis on First Friday, September 7, 2018. It is now in my bedroom where I see it first thing every morning and I just can’t sell it!
I’ve mentioned before how much I love Frank Relle’s photographs. This one took my breath away. I was so excited to paint this, and thank you again, Mr. Relle, photographer extraordinaire, for your generosity of spirit!
This is a huge challenge, getting the light and colors right and trying to do justice to one of the most beautiful photographs of a Louisiana swamp you will ever see. Thanks to Frank Relle Photography for the inspiration. This is what I’ve got so far!
